'Smash's' 'Will & Grace' Reunion: Sean Hayes Lands Season 2 Arc
NBC Orders Competition 'Hollywood Game Night' to Series
Smash is reuniting Will & Grace's Sean Hayes and Debra Messing.
Hayes has booked a multiple-episode arc on Season 2 of NBC's Broadway drama, the network announced Monday.
Hayes will play Terrence Falls, a comedic TV and film star who is making his Broadway debut in the musical Liaisons, based on the novel Les Liaisons Dangereuses. However, due to a series of comedic circumstances, he becomes a thorn in the side of Megan Hilty's Ivy and other characters.
The arc becomes Hayes' second with the network for the upcoming season, following a stint on NBC's second-year comedy Up All Night.
Hayes becomes the latest addition to the ever-expanding Season 2 cast of Smash. Broadway player Krysta Rodriguez, Andy Mientus, Jeremy Jordan and Jennifer Hudson have joined the series as the drama undergoes a creative reboot that will see Season 1 co-stars co-stars Brian d'Arcy James (Frank), Jamie Cepero (Ellis), Raza Jaffrey (Dev) and Messing's former on-screen love interest Will Chase (Michael Swift) exit.
